not spectacular. We missed this spot initially thinking the sign was one of many lookout spots. I wouldn't suggest skipping it but don't go out of the way to look for this lookout.

It's funny that TripAdvisor has a review for a little spot to pull over on the side of the road. But sure enough, it is about the most beautiful thing I have ever seen. So take the minute or two to pull over and take a look.

We stopped here to take a few photos. The view was really lovely. But, really, you can't stay here too long. You just park on the side of the road, take a nice look, and keep moving. But, looking down on the lush landscape is beautiful. And, well worth a look!

Just a pull off by the road but got some great pictures. You can see the taro fields and the one lane bridge

Even though we've been to Kauai/Hanalei four times, we always stop here to take in the view and a picture or two. Who hasn't, in fact? Over the years, there may have been some overgrowth of bushes and trees that partially obscures (or maybe there's periodic trimming, and we timed it wrong). Beautiful and very emblematic of Hanalei.

This is a picture you cannot mistake. Take the time to pull off the road and frame your loved ones with the unmistakable view that this lookout offers. Magnificent.

Just off the road but a quick stop will remind you why you went to Kauai in the first place. Gorgeous.

Not much parking but people don't hang too long so you should be OK. The view is nice of all the Taro fields and mountains in the distance. Makes for a great quick stop and photo.
